JEHONATHAN

je-hon'-a-than (yehonathan, "Yahweh has given"): The name is the same as Jonathan: the Hebrew has the two forms for the same person sometimes; sometimes only one is found. See JONATHAN. The form "Jehonathan" occurs as follows in English Versions of the Bible:
(1) A Levite who took part in teaching the Torah in the cities of Judah under Jehoshaphat (2 Ch 17:8 English Versions of the Bible and Hebrew).
(2) Head of the priestly family of Shemaiah (Neh 12:18 English Versions of the Bible and Hebrew).
(3) the King James Version and Hebrew in 1 Ch 27:25; see JONATHAN, (7).
